The Iowa Aftercare Services Network, serving youths who have aged out of foster care, has extended services for an additional two years, up to age 23. Extended Aftercare allows qualified participants over the age of 21 to connect with Aftercare if their situations have changed due to the economic impact of COVID-19. More than 100 young adults have already benefited from this age extension since the change became effective, the organization said. Aftercare is designed to help youths successfully transition into adulthood following their foster care experience; qualified participants are also eligible to receive a monthly stipend of up to $600.
